Thanks for all the nice comments.
I decided to post a follow up to show how the design of the glass shelves work. I wanted the shelves to be solid in front with the slot coming from the back. The slot ends with a hole that is bigger than the slot and all of the shoulders are rounded over. This creates a “well” for the stem to sit down in and keeps it from moving in the slot. The glasses are easily removed from the back with a slight tilt as shown in the photo.
After cleaning up my workshop I saw my shop drawings and thought you might like seeing the detailed plan – the scale is basically 2” per square. The second page is my scratch paper with the critical dimensions for the bottles, glasses, and the posts.
